This intensive beginners course is for people who have none or very little knowledge of Dutch. In 5 weeks, you will reach level A2. The course is suitable for individuals who are motivated and have study skills. Furthermore, you need to have high school degree and you must be able to study independently besides the classes. The study load for this course is 40 hours a week: you cannot miss any lessons and you do not have time to work or go to university in addition to this course.
During our classes we work with the famous Delft-Method developed by Delft University. With this method you are able to learn a new language in a natural and fast way.
Every morning and afternoon you will have a conversation lesson taking one hour. During the conversation lesson you will discuss a text which you will study beforehand. The teacher leads the conversation while at the same time assessing the students’ reading comprehension skills.
After 5 weeks you are able to speak about to talk about various subjects and you mastered the 2000 most frequently used Dutch words! By the end of this course you will reach A2 level in Dutch. You can continue with our intermediate course (to B1) or our course to prepare yourself for the integration exam.
If you prefer to learn Dutch on a slower pace, we recommend an alternative Dutch beginners course of 3 months, called Van start.
